Just in case canon change the battery from LP-E6, can i switch to Nikon at least then?
(yes, that would be an awesome reason)

Now, that's a valid reason to make a switch. ;D

Seriously though, we all would have no option if Canon changes the battery pack for the new 5D, but it'd be nice if they stick with the old LP-E6.

yeah, even if there is an option, just like in 1D X, it will be a huge plus.. here's to hoping :)

Reading the posts in this thread and other links provided I'm convinced the next 5D will be called 5DX, will have 22 mp, pro AF and great image quality both at low ISOs and high ISOs.
I hope they will have the multicontroller on the grip as in the posted images from Kenya. This is a must have feature for me personally. I can't tell you have many time i've cursed my 5d mark ii for not having that. Best way to change the focus point with the grip on and holding the camera in portrait orientation.
Can't wait for March 2nd!

Please, tell me with what camera do you have trouble getting quality images at low ISO settings?  I can't think of one camera in Canon's current lineup that produces bad images at low ISOs.

Is there any word on the battery the new camera will use? There will be a lot of pissed people if they make this camera with a new battery design,  think of all those video people that have banks of batteries.

WTF, people are talking about shooting themselves over the additional 2 day wait (jokes, but still), everyone wants the camera to be ridiculously cheap, and now you're complaining that it may use different batteries? 
You have to compromise somewhere and accept that there may be a few things about the camera that you won't like....

I dont give a S___ if it's $4000 body only with a battery no one has, I'm still getting 2 of them and I'm not going to complain like a bitch.

at least kuaddro.com says so:
http://www.kuaddro.com/canon-eos-5dx-name-confirmed/

I don't know how accurate this site is but if there is only going to be one version. And it is going to be called the "5D-X" then so be it. For the reasons listed on that site. As long as we get the rumored "5D3" specs (e.g. 22MP, 61-pt AF, 6.x FPS and high native ISO (e.g. 100-12,800 or better yet...100-51,200 as in the 1D-X).

Hope we get some good news on March 2nd...or the night before (just before midnight).

@CR: Hope you only had to go back for a reason related to the new tech coming.The day you know the announcement will be huge you might post some gear you gonna offer at second hand rates as a hint, let's say: old 24-70, old 5DMkII even though it's not a lens ;D

Please, tell me with what camera do you have trouble getting quality images at low ISO settings?  I can't think of one camera in Canon's current lineup that produces bad images at low ISOs.

Rather often when lighting conditions are not superb and I shoot at 400 ISO I'm not overwhelmed with the image quality delivered by my 7D. Pictures often have quite high levels of noise and a murky look to them. Since I only shoot RAW I can fix most of these problems in DPP and PS but I would definitely love to get cleaner pictures with more vibrant colours.

March 2 will be the date for the 5D replacement.

...Yet it's not sure whether it's called a 5D mk3 or a 5D X?
Also, the word "replacement" is used here - has there been any clarity yet on whether it's going to be a replacement for the 5D mk2 at all? (i.e. the 5D mk2 not being discontinued?)

They will be merging the 5D and 7D lines to get the sporting fuction into a ff sensor
